💪 Fancy this GraphQL query? I'm on my way to build it!

— 2 minute read

The query is this one:

mutation {
comment(id: 1) {
replyToComment(data: data) {
id @sendEmail(
to: "{{ parentComment.author.email }}",
subject: "{{ author.name }} has replied to your comment",
content: "
<p>On {{ comment.date(format: \"d/m/Y\") }}, {{ author.name }} says:</p>
<blockquote>{{ comment.content }}</blockquote>
<p>Read online: {{ comment.url }}</p>

This query demonstrates how sending notifications via Symfony Notifier will be accomplished (for email, Slack and SMS). It makes use of a few pioneering features, still being considered (to more or less extent) for the GraphQL spec:

🔥 Nested mutations
🔥 Embeddable fields (based on composable fields)
🔥 Flat chain syntax

I am working to get the funding to implement them, through my recently launched GitHub sponsors. In total, currently there are 23 features looking for sponsorship:

Features looking for sponsors

Once implemented, the GraphQL API for WordPress may perfectly be the most forward-looking GraphQL in the market 🙀.

What do you think? Is it worth sponsoring this project? Want to become a sponsor?
